Project Background 

Converse is an exploration project located approximately 30 miles southeast of Winnemucca, Nevada in Humboldt County. The Project has undergone several exploration projects since the Mine Plan of Operations was approved in 1998. Converse Resources, LLC acquired the property in 2015 and since then, they have worked to develop the resource. Sunstone has provided staff for environmental support at the property with a focus on water right retention.  

Major Projects 

Water Right Maintenance 

The water rights at Converse have been extended for ten plus years with little to no action therefore, Converse resources was concerned about potentially losing them. Sunstone met with the NDWR to develop a course of action for protecting these rights to maintain a water supply for future mine operations. We contracted with a third party to perform a geologic analysis to determine the location for a production well. Once a location was pinpointed, we contracted with drillers to drill a well and determine the rate of water production. The results of this program will be submitted to the NDWR along with a permit extension to show advancements on the project and efforts towards achieving beneficial use.
